Fellow Real Housewives of New York City cast offs Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon met earlier today for a peaceful, Bravo-camera-free lunch together at Le Bilboquet in New York City.
Both ladies, as well as hair dresser to the stars Bradley Irion – who was also in attendance, tweeted about their grub grabbing afterward, including this interesting bit from Jill that indicates she is happy to no longer be on the show:
Such great lunch with @kellybensimon as I walked home I passed by sonjas house and saw cameras. So happy it is behind me. So much ahead.
Anyone else imagining a really sad Jill walking 15 blocks out of her way to stare forlornly at Sonja flashing her vajonja for the Bravo cameras? I know that’s not what happened, but that’s how my snarky blogger mind imagines it.
UPDATE - Someone asked Jill on Twitter, “If that’s how u feel then why didn’t u quit?” to which Jill responded, “Maybe i did..but it doesnt matter. What is meant to be is how it is. I couldnt take stress and they knew it more than i did”
Oh, and speaking of Jill, she apparently has a new show lined up on another network. I don’t know much more than that, but she has referred to it a number of times on Twitter, so it must be a done deal. Any guesses out there? A talk show you think? Maybe a Bethenny Ever After type reality show? Or maybe a perpetual Where Are They Now: Jill Zarin series in which we get updated every week on whatever happened to that Jill woman from The Real Housewives of New York City. Remember her?
Or maybe this is what she’s talking about:
Anyhooo… here are the tweets from Kelly Bensimon and Bradley Irion about their little luncheon:
Kelly Bensimon: Best chicken salad at Bilbouquet with @jillzarin @bradleyirion and my two besties. Having Fun is contagious
Bradley Irion: @kellybensimon @jillzarin thanks for laughs love you guys and that cajun chicken is the BEST…. Worth the trip to the UES!!!
